Kayak at Taal Lake Conservation center


 Taal Volcano is a highly active volcano at the heart of a larger protected area established in 1996. The Taal Volcano Protected Landscape is composed of over 65,000 hectares in 13 towns and 3 cities, including Lipa City, Tanauan City and Tagaytay. The entire area is a land of mystery and shrouded in myths. Most of the tourism is concentrated on Tagaytay Ridge and the shoreline of Talisay town. There are, however, other entry points to the crater as well as other attractions that a visitor would find interesting. Pusod offers a glimpse of the ancient past of the region, debunking myths told about this mysterious caldera, exploring the archeological and biological mysteries from the viewpoint of scientists themselves all from the gentler side of the lake where the Tagalog culture is still most evident. Pusod is primarily an environmental education NGO. We start with a short briefing on a 3D map and a timeline of Taal’s eruption history. No other tour can offer the wealth of information on the lake basin that Pusod can, as we were instrumental in all the 16 consultations undertaken for the management plan of the lake basin. Our tours also ensure as little economic leakage as possible, ensuring that local businesses are patronized and accredited guides regale you with the lake’s legends and the culture in the heartland of the Batangueños. Experts on Taal: a biologist, a geophysicist and an archeologist/journalist will also be guiding you by audio (on an MP3 we will loan you). https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=155365971156003
